For Madera Theatre Project, the final show of the summer is ‘Into the Woods.’ You can win a pair of tickets.

I‘m giving away two tickets to Madera Theatre Project’s “Into the Woods,” which opens Thursday, Aug. 3, at the Matilda Torres High School Performing Arts Center.

At the beginning of this summer’s season, I featured two prominent guests from the production on “The Munro Review on CMAC.” Director Michael Christopher Flores and actor Zelia Ankrum (who plays Little Red) made memorable appearances, including a musical number. The interview starts at the 16:50 mark:


The winner will be able to pick from any performances from Aug. 4-12 (all but opening night).

The contest is open to members, donors and individual sponsors of The Munro Review. Tax-deductible memberships start at $5 a month, and you can make a one-time donation of as little as $3. (Paid memberships help keep the site running, and paid members get special members-only benefits. Please consider a paid membership in support of independent, local arts journalism.) A free membership option is available. For details on how to join, go to the Membership and Sponsorship page. No purchase, donation or membership is necessary to enter the ticket giveaway.


To enter this giveaway, leave a reply on this post (see below) answering this question: A theme of the show is that “Children Will Listen.” Can you provide any real-life examples? Or if you’d rather not share, just tell us why you’d like to see the show. Deadline to enter is 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 4. The winner will be picked at random and notified by email.

    Children will Listen… and repeat back what they hear the grown ups say, for good or for ill!!

    Be the example. Children should be seen and heard, for they are great imitators. Hearing is easy, listening is difficult. Good listeners live in the moment and pay attention to what is going on in the here and now.

    “Do as I say and not as I do” mentality never works.
